    Can anyone tell what kind of wood was used on the Model 60, It sure does not look like Walnut! :) -Cliff, Should have written Winchester Model 60-

    It might be gumwood. It was common for Winchester to use gumwood on earlier carbine rifles in the 1890's, but most of the latter ones used walnut.

    I think Rocketman is correct but by the time the model 60 came along I believe only walnut was used by the factory.
